Friends gather Sunday to continue search for Savannah Spurlock

By  | 

LANCASTER, Ky. (WKYT) – Loved ones of missing mother Savannah Spurlock searched near a Garrard County lake on Sunday. They wrapped up their latest effort to bring the Madison County woman home, without any new answers or findings.

22-year-old Spurlock was last seen with two men, leaving The Other Bar in Lexington early Friday, Jan. 4. Law enforcement officials in Garrard County later saw the vehicle she left in, and the men she was with, but still no sign of Spurlock.

A third man seen leaving the bar with Spurlock has also been questioned. Police have not released whether the men provided any information on where Spurlock may be.

"The fear of the unknown... that is the worst part, and she just doesn't deserve that. I mean, no one does," said friend Megan King.

King and others are still working to figure out why and where Spurlock disappeared, but those questions remain a mystery to them as officials in multiple counties continue their investigation.

"We have an idea of an area that we would like to go check and maybe split up in groups and look for her," said King, before Sunday's search in Garrard County.

More than a week has now passed since the mother of infant twins and two other children went missing. As the days pass, loved ones continue to search new areas based on new information.

Earlier this week, the group searched near downtown Lexington, where police say Savannah was last seen leaving a bar. Speaking to WKYT on Friday, Essence Crowdus, a close friend of Spurlock’s, said, “We’re going off of every clue that we get… we want her home. She’s still alive. She’s still out here. She’s just waiting on us to find her.”

On Sunday, friends searched in the area of Cedar Creek Lake in Lancaster, following leads and tips from anonymous sources.

"We really just want to bring her home regardless, no matter the outcome and we just pray that God is with us today and guides us to her," said King. "If she is somewhere out there we can only imagine what she is going through, how she feels. So if it was one of us out there, I would hope that everyone would do everything they could to find one of us."

Even though Sunday's search came up empty, friends still have hope that they will find Savannah, and are asking for anyone with information about her disappearance to come forward.

"We just have high hopes in coming together as a community and bringing her home," said King.
